The town of Millet held their first farmers market of the season on Wednesday, July 8. This year is the annual event’s 5th anniversary, and in celebration, visitors were welcomed by receiving free pieces of anniversary cake.

This season, the market will be running every Wednesday afternoon from 3:30 to 6 p.m. until September 30th at the Millet Agriplex, and its cool, indoor location is especially comfortable for overly hot or rainy summer days. With a variety of 14 different vendors, there’s no doubt you’ll come upon a great buy.

Stop by to check out healthy, organic produce from local farmers, tasty gluten-free Chinese food, vast collections of handmade items including jewelry, quilts, and woodwork, fresh B.C. fruit, home-based business vendors including Watkins and Norwex products, a food truck with delicious snacks (including red velvet pancakes), and much more.

Irene Knull, the head organizer of the Millet Farmers Market, said that the market has grown a good deal since their first year. With a great turnout of vendors this season, she encourages people to come and check it out, sit down and have a cup of coffee, and get to know your community. The Millet Farmers Market is a great place to support local farmers and home businesses in your area, as well as a fun way to spend any Wednesday afternoon.

If you have any questions, contact Irene Knull for more information at 780-387-4442.
